    Here's a few pics of my bed light install. I used the wally world tractor lights because I liked the way they looked mounted into the bed cubby. Its also nice that they are $10 each.

    Before I put the lights in, I ran a length of 10ga. wire to the drivers side bed compartment and installed a weather resistant fuse block back there. I mounted a small fuse block in one of these cool weather tight boxes we have at my work. I also got the switch from my work... its a 3 position... off/1 light/2 lights. I really like how it all came together.

    thanks guys... I ended up needing them the first night I installed the lights. This is a great mod. I was able to do it like the others here... for about $23. I get all my wire and stuff for free from work. Believe it or not... John Deere charges $48 for that light switch...lol.
